Abstract Building sustainable homes and creating sustainable settlements through city planning, compact city patterns and urban consolidation have attracted considerable focus in recent years. Too often, however, the neighbourhood has been neglected. Yet the neighbourhood connects our homes with the city system. The location of neighbourhoods, the way in which neighbourhoods are built, the amenities they provide, the quality of the neighbourhood experience and the attachment that people have to their neighbourhood and the people that live in it are all important if our homes and our cities are to be sustainable. In this paper, we consider what makes neighbourhoods sustainable. We also explore the opportunities that neighbourhoods provide to create more sustainable behaviours within our homes, and we consider the extent to which the design and building of dwellings are responding to the demands for intensification and mixed use at the neighbourhood level in the context of urban consolidation.
